Looks like a 2 or 4 gig one? Am wondering if there’s any real difference between the innards of the 4gig ones and of the 8gig… I very much want a green 8gig nano, if they’re identical inside maybe some transplant surgery is in order…

TB, the dimensions of the case are the same sizes for both so you could always just swap your black case with someone elses green case instead of transplanting any of the electrical stuff.

So does anyone know if the battery is soldered on like it was on the first gen. nanos?  It doesnt look like it from the pictures, can anyone confirm?

The question is, how easy is it to get apart and put back together?

“The question is, how easy is it to get apart and put back together?”

It couldnt be that hard considering how quickly ilounge did it.  Its probably about as difficult as it was on the mini.

The assembly looks simple enough, if you’re careful it should be easy to put back together again.
My bet is that the battery is soldered again, bit poo but I could’ve replaced either. Now there’s no HDD to fail on me, I intend to have my 8gb nano for ages.
